Morgan began his career as an apprentice electrician in County Durham. Fast forward a few years and he’s now in Switzerland, working at the forefront of science, on the biggest machine ever built.

Morgan knew that A-levels weren’t for him. He wanted to get out and start working as soon as possible. He knew that an apprenticeship would suit him and decided on becoming an electrician after enjoying physics and woodwork at school.

After finishing his apprenticeship, Morgan wanted a new challenge and decided to apply to the Technician Training Experience at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

CERN is the home of the Large Hadron Collider, which at 27 kilometres circumference is the world’s largest particle accelerator. “When I first came to CERN I was really taken aback by the size of the machines, I was nervous about doing work in case I broke them.”

“Every day you’re working on cutting-edge stuff for the benefit of physics and fundamental research. We’ve developed machines for cancer treatment, which is a pretty nice feeling to know that you’ve had your part in that.”

“The experiments [at CERN] reveal what actually created the universe, so it’s definitely a pretty cool place to work!”
